Song Of The Day: George Harrison – “Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)”

On this day in 1973, this George Harrison classic reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100. In the process, it knocked Paul McCartney’s “My Love” out of the top spot and marked the only time two former Beatles owned the top two spots in the countdown. Per Songfacts, Harrison said in his autobiography I Me Mine, “Sometimes you open your mouth and you don’t know what you are going to say, and whatever comes out is the starting point. If that happens and you are lucky, it can usually be turned into a song. This song is a prayer and personal statement between me, the Lord, and whoever likes it.”
